    Randomly on my computer I noticed very high CPU use while the computer was otherwise idle. I have narrowed it to the launchd and syslogd processes, taking up roughly 85% of my CPU for no good reason. I do have a TM backup that I could restore from, but that takes a while, so is there any way I could make them stop? (Already tried quitting from Activity monitor, it simply restarted my computer and didn't fix the problem)

    EDIT- Nevermind, it just went away on its own. Weird.

    I get this from launchd every now and then. Just happened now, and got up to almost 200%. My CPU usage was at max for awhile, up until FF froze.
